Running an FTP server behind a router (NAT) had always been hard, almost nobody can success without necessary knowledge and manual configuration on routers and ftp server softwares, you usually need to apply for a dynamic IP domain name, configure your router manually for port mapping setup, configure your ftp server manually because it is behind a NAT so it does not know your real Internet IP-Address for passive connections to use.

Now things had changed , with latest RaidenFTPD v2.4 build 3436+ with UPnP NAT traversal, all the above troubles are all gone, the RaidenFTPD UPnP NAT traversal can do the following things for you automatically

* configure necessary port mapping setup on your router (Internet gateway device) automatically
* detect external IP-Address for PASV mode data connections automatically
* supports dynamic IP changes , detects dynamic IP changes without using a dynamic IP domain name service

UPnP NAT traversal auto setup

how to use UPnP NAT traversal (Windows XP only)

Hints


Q: How to bring back the yellow popup dialog box if I clicked not to display it again?

A: please delete 2 lines from raidenftpd.ini and restart raidenftpd.exe again

NAT_ICS_AUTO_CONF_WINDOW_CHKSUM=
NAT_ICS_AUTO_CONF_WINDOW=

Q: I bought a new router but the RaidenFTPD gui console displays my old router info?!

A: please delete the router info cache file called ''UPnP_IGD.cache" inside your RaidenFTPD dir.

Q: The yellow popup window appears but I don't see the port mappings on the router

A: Your router may have some problems , try to open a MSN 6.0 messenger and see if a port mapping for MSN is added to your router , if not you can call your router vendor now.

Q: They said my router supports UPnP but I don't see the yellow popup

A: Make sure UPnP is enabled , you need to goto the router's administration program to enable it

Q: I use windows xp and I have an UPnP router but I do not want to use this feature

A: in this case edit raidenftpd.ini NO_UPNP_IGD_SCAN=1 , and restart the program
